I've got a couple options in the stash for this one. I'll make it my first campaign build for 2020.

Chris, Mark and anyone else I may have missed, welcome to the group!

To enlist in the campaign, click on the link to the campaign section. Find our camping, “I Like Big GUNS...And I Cannot Lie!” Click on that to enter our page. There’s an “Enlist” button on the right side of the screen. Be sure you’re logged into the site first though.

If you have any questions feel free to post them here. I’ll start the official campaign message thread on January 1 when we go live!

If I could find the right decals or masks I'd do this!



Just because it's something to grab your eye!





The colors and designs represent the German Soccer (football) team FC Schalke. It would be neat to do.

I've got the AFV Club version of this gun waiting in the stash - I'm in!




Err Mike and Richard

I don't want to poop the party, but aren't anti-tank guns like the Pak 43/41 outside scope for this build ?


Or is this time for a rule change??

The next sentence reads:

No Rockets, missiles or air defense artillery allowed; just indirect fire weapons. Sorry, that's a NO on anti-tank guns too.




Anyway here's picture of my entry. I await the start of this campaign. I think I can finish this one as there are no tracks, not that many parts, only two wheels, and it's mostly one color.

You are correct. Anti-tank guns are not eligible. Only indirect fire weapons: field guns, howitzers, mortars, etc.

Pete, that looks like an artillery piece to me...

I'll allow it.

I meant Mike's Pak 43/41, not the Sig 33. Mike deleted his post with the picture of the gun...

Same here. Bought a couple different sets of Hussar wheels for the Long Tom 155 which still await in the stash.

These are guns in my stash that I am considering for this campaign. Of course, I'll only work on one. I'm still on the fence which one it should be.





This will be in firing position.


And this for towed configuration.


Out of curiosity, would these two be accepted for this campaign?
